Willowbend Country Club Wedding | Maura & Brian

Maura and Brian kicked off my May weddings with a super fun and fabulous day at Willowbend Country Club!

Based on the forecast, the day was looking very wet, but it couldn’t have gone any better! The rain held off during our planned outdoor photo time making everything work out so smoothly:)!

Here is a little peek at their day…


These bracelets were made by a friend of Maura’s and they looked great on them! More photos and link to her site below:)

These are Maura’s girls (and mom:)! Every single one of these ladies are Westwood girls and it turns out that all of the guys are also from Westwood – making the entire wedding party a Westwood crew:)!

Maura with her mom and sister:)

Love these photos – pure joy:) The villas at Willowbend are huge and fabulous for getting ready too!


During the getting ready time, it was raining and this covered porch worked out perfectly for all of the photos we wanted to do:)! Gorgeous lighting, gorgeous ladies and gorgeous flowers!

It was then time to head to meet Brian for the first look and it turned out to be one of the BEST first looks that I have ever experienced! Absolute excitement and happiness- which then continued for the whole day!

The rain stopped just in time for their first look and held off for some photos in this cute spot at Willowbend! How can you pass up a tree in bloom – the quintessential sign of a fabulous spring wedding!

Brian is a hockey goalie and busted this out:)!

Then they all joined him:)

The whole fabulous Westwood crew (until the guests arrived then there were SO many more;)…

As I mentioned before, Maura’s talented friend, Sisco + Berluti,  made the bracelets for Maura and all of the girls – their whole look was stunning:).

As we were heading to the red barn, it started to rain and we didn’t want to risk getting over there and it starting to pour:) We pulled over quickly and were able take a few pictures on the lawn – which was a little wet:)

Absolutely love these two and the signature red barn at Willowbend!

Another talented friend of Maura’s, at  Carrick Bend Boutique ,  did all of the gorgeous paper products  for the wedding!

Maura’s adorable nephew arrived in time for some family photos:)

Brian and Maura’s families – all together:)

After wrapping up all of the family photos, it was time to head to the church!

Maura’s friend Liz sang during communion and was FANTASTIC!

Back at Willowbend, cocktail hour began!

Then it was time for the reception and a grand entrance:)

There were three speeches by Maura’s father, Maura’s sister and Brian’s brother and after every speech I thought to myself, “That is a tough act to follow” and every speech topped the one before it! They were all amazing!!

I do not normally include this many speech photos, but there was just so much happiness (and even happy tears), so I was drawn to include all of these photos:)!

The WHOLE Westwood crew:)

PARTY TIME and that is truly what they did – with the help of a great band to lead the way!

Maura and Brian – Your happiness, excitement  and fabulous group of friends and family made the entire day SO. MUCH. FUN!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it! Congrats to you both:)!
